Why Do You Think Kids Should Get Into Riding Scooters?
I think is the perfect mix between skate and bmx and, maybe, the proges is faster than other sports like bmx, skate or surf, and that’s important so that the child doesn’t get frustrated.
Do You Listen to Music While You Ride? If So, What Gets You Pumped?
I don’t like to listen music when I film, but if I’m chilling with homies, yes I do. And it’s depends what I want. If I want to ride hard I listen Hard Rock and Hip Hop, but if I want to be more creative I listen chill music. And I prefer filming 100%, I like to take my time for think the tricks and I don’t like the pression of a lot of people seeing you. But If have to choose between two kinds of comps, I prefer Jams, or best tricks.
What's Your Riding Philosophy?
Ride for you everytime. You can be sponsored and maybe you have and obligations with this sponsor, but if you don’t feel happy when you ride if you just ride for work, you’re lost. So my philosophy is that, enjoy every moment that you ride, don’t lose the motivation that you had when you was a kid, and don’t compete with anyone just with yourself.
Explain The Biggest Street Spot/Jump You Ever Hit
My memory is not really good, so maybe I miss another big spot. But I remember a big trick when I was filming for the coallition barcelona, in the famous wave spot. I did Decade 720, was a big battle but I won.
